SEVEN NIGHTS, RAJA AMPAT NATIONAL PARK

2018 Departures: September 23rd – 30th, 2018
Described by some as the world’s most beautiful islands, Raja Ampat offers steep jungle clad landscapes, white sand beaches and hidden lagoons not to mention some of the most bio-diversity marine life on the planet.
 

Situated off the northwest tip of West Papua, Raja Ampat’s six hundred islands are remote, undisturbed, and a true nature lover’s paradise.
Bursting with colour thanks to its incredible coral, the warm waters are home to reef sharks, manta rays and whale sharks and offer some of the best diving and snorkeling opportunities on the planet.

On land, many species of bird including the stunning red bird of paradise can be seen, while local villages offer cultural excursions and some of the warmest hospitality you will ever encounter.

Northern Raja Ampat Park Itinerary

DAY 1: BATANTA ISLAND

Arrive in Sorong airport from where it is a short 20 minute journey by private vehicle and tender to Lamima, your home for the next 7 nights. Once aboard, set sail for Batanta Island where we will anchor for our first night.
The smallest of Raja Ampat’s four main islands,
Batanta is the perfect introduction to the beauty of the reef and rainforest.

DAY 2: FAM ISLANDS

This morning sail to the beautiful Fam Islands to enjoy hidden bays and sheltered blue lagoons. Explore by kayak or dive to see some of the most beautiful coral gardens in the region. In the early evening we will take a sunset hike where you can reach the highest point on one of the islands and admire the panoramic views.

DAY 3: KAWE ISLAND

One of the closest islands to the Equator in Raja Ampat, Kawe Island offers spectacular white sand beaches and beautiful scenery including a lovely waterfall on the western side of the island.

There are fantastic opportunities for diving and snorkeling here too where you will find impressive coral formations teeming with schools of fish. You may even be lucky enough to swim with manta rays.

DAY 4: WAYAG ISLANDS

Arrive in the Wayag archipelago, the jewel of Raja Ampat, and enjoy a day amongst the region’s most iconic scenery. It’s well worth making the effort to climb one of the many island peaks for breathtaking views of the stunning landscapes. You will also be able
dive or snorkel, experiencing the incredibly rich marine life, or paddle board along the shoreline of the dramatic limestone islands. In the evening we can enjoy a few cocktails and a barbecue on the beach.

DAY 5: WOFOH ISLAND

Wofoh Island is ideal for divers and non-divers alike. Multiple dive sites offer a mix of hard coral, barrel sponges and soft corals teeming with colorful fish. The calm surrounding waters are ideal for a kayaking and paddle boarding while the islands’ gorgeous white sand beaches are the perfect location for sun downers and barbecue dinner.

DAY 6: KRI ISLAND

The waters of Kri Island offer some of the very best diving in all of Raja Ampat and its spectacular reef holds the world record for the
number of fish species recorded in a single dive. As well as great schools of trevallies, tuna and barracuda, this is a one of the few locations where you can spot wobbegongs. A nearby long white sandbank is the perfect place to relax at the end of the day.

DAY 7: KABUI BAY

Rise early and head ashore for a 40 minute trek into the jungle to look for the magnificent red bird of paradise. Afterwards, using the tenders, explore ‘The Passage’, a narrow straight that runs between Gam and Waigeo, where the rainforest meets the reef in a labyrinth of limestone teeming with wildlife. Here you can also enjoy bird watching or perhaps partake in some paddle-boarding or kayaking before an overnight cruise to Matan Island.

DAY 8: SORONG

Enjoy a final swim before cruising back to Sorong where our journey ends. A tender and private vehicle will transfer you to Sorong airport for your journey home or onward travel.
